Finally, almost a month ago, I got an email from Amazon that had the 2 brands on their Sales Ad. I really wanted to try the Panasonic Brand, but the best deal was on the Samsung. Being that I have several Samsung Products now and know the top quality of the brand, I chose the Samsung PN51D450 51" 720p for under $700.00 and ordered it. Delivery was about a week, timed appointment, white glove delivery and a nice knowledgable friendly delivery person. I had read about the "burn in" issues with Plasmas, but with pixal shift and a scroll bar, that is not a issue any longer if you follow the 100-200 break-in period. Yes, it is a pain, but it is well worth it. You can find written instructions online on how to setup your Plasma before the seemingly, never-ending break-in time. You need to find a channel that doesn't have a logo in one place, like a cable information channel, and just let it run. I put mine in the bedroom, so I was running it 17 hours a day and with that, it was almost 2 weeks before the 200 hours was done. Most experts recommend the 200 hours. Once that is done, you may go in and adjust all of the settings to get the UNBELIEVABLE PLASMA PICTURE YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT, from the experts !!!!!
The Samsung is about 20lbs lighter than the Panasonic and that is a plus. This Plasma is one of the lower priced ones that Samsung has, but you are only missing the "add on features" that have nothing to do with the picture. The most debate for me was, did I really need 1080p. For the usage I have for this set, 720p is great and it saved me several Hundred Bucks and that is a plus.
If you don't have the desire to wait a couple of weeks to "break-in" the set, buy a LCD. If you want to own and see why all of the experts say that the Plasma is the best picture, try this set. I think that you will be happy with the picture and I know you you will find a use for all of the money you are saving.
Overall, I believe I made the correct decision, 1. as good a picture as you can find
2. over 20lbs lighter than comparable brands 3.a 51" Plasma for under $700.00 !!!
Just another fine Samsung Product.
UPDATE APRIL 18: I'm still loving this set, but I like it even more now that I've learned how to tweak the picture controls. The default settings have the brightness controls set very high; once I turned that down, the picture looks even more amazing. I also learned that I can set the picture and sound controls for each input device (cable box, dvd player, etc) and those settings will be saved and reappear each time that device is used. This is really handy if you like to use different settings when watching a movie, for example. My advice is to spend 10-15 minutes reading your manual carefully to learn what all the picture settings do, then adjust the picture to get it just the way you like it instead of using the default factory settings. It makes a big difference!
I did look at the LG plasmas as I have a 60" LG 1080p in my main viewing room, as I found them to be solid quality and good value. I nearly bought the 1080p LG 50" which was only 10%-15% more than this unit, but was put off by the fact that it weighed 60lb v 50lb for the Samsung.
I don't need internet connectivity as I get internet content from my TiVo, so the base model suited my needs. As for 1080p v 720p, at my viewing distance of 12' I understand its not possible to tell the difference - this is certainly consistent with my experience. The picture quality is very good - the biggest constraint is the quality of the feed from my cable provider. I avoid watching SD content where possible so have limited experience of how the Samsung does here.
As for plasma burn-in issues, I have had a bunch of plasmas and have never had an issue with them watching regular TV. I can't comment on the sound quality as I use a separate receiver.
All-in-all, this is a great tv, with very good picture quality and smallish form factor for a great price.
The TV looks great out of the box and the stand is very sturdy. The only problem with the stand is that it does not swivel from side to side so you have to pick up the tv and move the stand if you want to change the viewing angle. The plug and play setup is a breeze and you can be watching TV within 30 seconds after plugging in the power and HDMI cable. It only has 2 HDMI ports but for me that's not a problem because I have one going into my Direct TV and the other into a DVD player. I watched Band of Brothers on DVD last night and the picture quality looked great. You can notice a window or sunlight glare if it faces directly on the screen but just close the blinds if this really bothers you. If I put it up side by side with my Samsung 50" 1080p plasma I might be able to notice a slight difference but I doubt it. Overall this is a solid TV for the price and is a perfect TV for the bedroom.
PS - remember to buy the cheap HDMI cables on Amazon. They work just as well as the expensive ones!
After looking for a TV for little over a year, reading comments in Amazon from regular Joes and Janes and from all the TV aficiandos and listening to my co-workers, I decided upon this TV mainly for the price and that it was a plasma.
I have experiences with LED/LCDs and decided against them because of the "fake look". The new plasma's such as this Samsung is incredible. The picture is beautiful for movies on Netflix, Hulu, and Dish TV. Playing Xbox 360 such as Halo Reach, Battlefield 1943, and Call Of Duty 3 is flawless.
Of course the price was unbeatable for little over $600.00 for a 51" TV and the price for the extended warranty was priced right also. I bought it the moment I saw the price. This TV replaced my 2007 57" rear-screen Hitachi which still works, but some issues prevent me from enjoying it such as the TV shutting itself off. Very strange. This does not bode well with me especially after watching a horror flick. lol.
The only thing that I didn't think about was that the new TV has only an audio jack for an fiber optic cable. I have a 2001 Sony 800 watt surround-sound system so my first thought was, "there ain't no way that my Sony has a fiber optic input". Well, there was one although I had never noticed it or I didn't know what that plug was for. So I got a 12' FO here at Amazon for $10.00.
If you haven't heard sound through a fiber optic, you're missing a big part of the picture. Since I've been in high school (late 70s) I have only used RCA jacks. But the fiber optic is incredible. The sound replication is about as good as it gets. The first show that I watched with this new set-up was "Cheers". Now knowing how many times I have heard this intro song to this show is no big deal to me but upon listening to the show through my surround-sound / FO cable was like listening to a brand new show. I could hear the arrangement of the song that I had never heard before and it was crystal clear and very well produced. Same goes for many shows through Dish TV and Netflix. It improves the TV watching experience.
One last comment. I didn't do the 100 hour break-in. I don't see a need with this new model but the only thing that I did was turn up the brightness slightly so I could watch TV. The day I had my TV I was watching it preset controls and nothing but dark scenes which made it unenjoyable. I treat my electronics with respect so I don't see any problems with doing this and no problems have arisen. All is good.
